Overview

About the property

Luxury, four-suite home accomodates up to 8 people.

Location: Overlooking the 4th green of Nick Faldo-designed Las Ventanas Club de Golf. Las Ventanas is a gated, fully secure development located 1 mile (1.5km) direct line from the center of downtown San Miguel de Allende, a World Heritage City and cultural paradise.

Description: Stunning contemporary design and appointments, hacienda-style home overlooking the 4th green of the beautiful, Nick Faldo signature Las Ventanas golf course. This house was designed to take advantage of the spectacular views, enriching sunlight, and cool, crisp breeze. House sits on ¼ acre lot with colorful gardens, fruit trees, grass lawn and a solar-heated swimming pool in the rear courtyard and surrounded on 3 sides by a 1st floor loggia (covered patio/courtyard).

The house sleeps 8 comfortably in 4 'suites'. There is a 5th bedroom with a double bed that 'could' be used for a child or single. Three bedrooms are on the first floor (two open onto the loggia), along with an oversized, fully stocked gourmet kitchen built for large groups and entertaining. The kitchen is open to both a dining area and a large living room equipped with large LCD satellite (and internet) TV and MP3/CD/radio music system. Among its many spectacular features, the kitchen is also equipped with an elevator to transport dishes/food/drink to the open air kitchen and dining area for 12 persons on the 3rd floor.

Up the artistically built stair case to the 2nd floor are two more suites. The rooms open to a huge, 2nd floor loggia complete with gardens and eating areas. The entire loggia overlooks the 4th fairway and makes for enjoyable golf watching.

A stairway leads from the 2nd floor loggia to the 3rd floor open air kitchen and dining area. The views from this area are absolutely spectacular. The Parroquia, San Miguel’s stunning, iconic church, and the city center (El Centro) light up large like a painting. In the opposite direction are unobstructed views of the Sierra Madre valley.

About Leigh Hayes

This property is owned by Leigh and Charlene Hayes. After falling in love with San Miguel, we were married there in 1995 and returned frequently for vacation and bask in its wonderful weather. We stayed in Centro, the center of the city, each time we visited and conveniently walked to most places. We decided during one vacation that if ever we purchased vacation property in San Miguel, we want it to be close to Centro, but away from its noise and congestion.

Leigh Hayes purchased this house in 2011

Why Leigh Hayes chose Guanajuato State

We purchased property soon after learning about the Ventanas golf course community development located ONLY one mile from Centro.We took 2 years to design and build our Casa Villa Golf, which was completed late 2011. Now we get to hear the church bells in the distance, view the fireworks remotely and enjoy no traffic noise.

What makes this house unique

Whether a golfer, a shopper, an adventurer or a naturalist, the setting of Casa Villa Golf is ideal, and overlooks the 4th green of the Ventanas golf course. Views of Centro are spectacular, especially at night, as are the panoramic views of soaring mountains and luscious valleys.

While our preferred design style is contemporary, we fell in love with the colonial architecture of San Miguel with its local design principles to bring 'the outdoors inside'. So Casa Villa Golf combines contemporary and colonial designs with details that take advantage of the warm sun, cool breeze and 360 degree views.

Casa Villa Golf has 5 bedrooms, four of which are master suites, and is perfect for a golf vacation with friends and/or family. Its solar heated swimming pool, walking gardens, satellite tv, wireless internet and large common areas provide lots to do when hanging around the casa.

Aside from enjoying world class golf on site at Ventanas (or at the other San Miguel's golf course), shopping and dining in Centro is just minutes away by car or a 20 minute walk.

All promises and more. Excellent comfort and tasteful luxury in a peaceful atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

Great family home with excellent amenities and very helpful services. Easy and quick access to downtown San Miguel, without being directly exposed to the crowds. We enjoyed the evening jogging around the golf course. The rose and flower garden is very beautiful.

The only problem was a lack of water, which was solved within 8 minutes by one call - this is outstanding service.

The in house manual was clear, extensive and very helpful.

We all loved the house, the location, the friendly and efficient services, the beautiful sunsets and the peaceful atmosphere.

Definitely a great choice!

Great stay at Luxurious Property in Ventanas de San Miguel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in Ventanas de San Miguel. We had a great time. We were a party of eight, including two children, and found the house safe, comfortable, fully equipped, from extra salt and bottle openers to a solar heated pool and up to 6 gas chimneys, and with a wide array of social areas (pool, great terrace!, kitchen, living room) which made it ideal to both socialize and have privacy whenever any of us wanted. If you like morning runs, the place is great for that too. Although it is a short drive to town, you do need a car. The staff and owner were also very nice and always concerned with us getting the most of our trip.

Excelent house

  • 5 of 5

We went there for a 3 night stay, and all we have to tell is good things. The house, the area, the rooms, the attention by the housekeeper was incredible, the house is very clean and has a very nice view. Its very near "centro" just 5 minutes by car and thats it.

All we want now is to go back the next weekend.

Map

In addition to world class golf at two local courses, San Miguel de Allende is a vibrant community located in Guanajuato, Mexico, nestled on a hillside with a spectacular view of the Guanajuato Mountains. San Miguel de Allende is filled with cobblestone streets, old mansions and centuries old cathedrals. The town is located four hours from Mexico City, and is home to two major art institutions. Wander down the streets and discover 18th century mansions, lovely fountains and historic monuments – all reminders of San Miguel’s illustrious and patriotic past. San Miguel is town that exists primarily on ART of various forms- Fine Art, Performing Art, Culinary Art, Language Art, and Graphic Art. Thus, there's overabundance of galleries, artisan workshops, boutiques, museums, churches and a surprisingly large number of excellent, international restaurants. In fact, San Miguel has a reputation for having the best “small town” dining in all of Mexico. Several artisans’ markets located throughout San Miguel sell traditional crafts, furniture, ceramics, folk art, silver jewelry, tin, glass and more.

There’s almost an endless list of activities in and around San Miguel d’Allende, including golf, tennis, hiking, shopping, dining, swimming, public hot baths, hot air balloon rides, theater, concerts, street scenes, parades, festivals, horseback riding and ATV tours in canyons; archaeological tours (e.g. the pyramid at La Canada de la Virgin); museums, art galleries, restaurants, etc
